Just checking in to say, it's official ... I'm no longer on dial up and, I'm no longer paying for AOL.
Thanks to all of the good advice that you guys left in the comment threads of my last entry, I was able to breeze through the process of converting my paid dial up account that I've had for over 10 years now, to a free broadband account.
It was simple really. I just clicked on live support and through a chat session, had someone from AOL walk me through the conversion process.
Obviously they did try to sell me on several different options for a new plan that would save me money. To that I just insisted that all I wanted was help with the conversion.
This very well may be the first time I've ever needed to use support during the last 10 years, so not having it in the future, should be no big deal.
I still sign on the way I always have in the past, it just says broadband for location now. It's amazing how much faster everything moves with cable, and the best part ... I no longer have to pay AOL to hang their banner ads in my journal.
See you around ... I do plan to spend more time here soon.
